This flask and cordial set is by Bao Sheng (生寳) was made in their Canton workshop ca. 1890-1910. This piece is cast— so it’s not repousse work. As a result, the set is extremely heavy weighing about 10 OZT. Highly decorated on both sides, and with a great hammered stipple bottom. This set is extremely elegant and is in near mint condition. Does not leak. Two or three fleabites at the top and the bottom of the cap has been slightly filed by a former owner testing the silver content. Marked for the maker and the retailer on the bottom. It’s marked ‘90’, but it tested with XRF as around 96% silver.
